The last two reinforcements like the previous two had kit-inspections as they arrived and lost all their private gear.  We were luckier and able to conceal everything we wanted and seeing what a long time we have remained in England, it was well worth while – pyjamas, etc. coming in handy.  Had a yarn with a decent well-spoken little body, whose hubby has been at the war from the beginning.  The country folk whom we have bespoken here in Hants have a good intonation of voice and spoken English without dialect.  When I got back behold – three letters awaiting me.  The rogues in the hut spread them out on my blankets with bogus ones between to make me think I had about a dozen.
